ABC Wednesday #2: N

17 Apr

For this week, my N is for NAVE, which the principal longitudinal area of a church, extending from the main entrance or narthex to the chancel, usually flanked by aisles of less height and breadth: generally used only by the congregation.

    New churches don’t have long nave, they even have it 3 sided so the platform is in the middle.

    This is truly lovely. The long aisle is so dramatic.

    I almost did ‘nave / narthex’ for N this week. Glad I didn’t as you and your pictures did such a great job on the word.
